Map & Directions

Road Directions

Our postcode is BN1 2LN. If you are travelling down the M23/A23, you are advised to approach the i360 from the west and should therefore join the A27 westbound (signposted towards Hove) and then use the A2038 (King George VI Avenue) and the A2023 (Nevill Road/Sackville Road) to reach the main coast A259 seafront road. This should help avoid the busiest routes into Brighton. From the east or the west, use the A27 or A259. We are located directly opposite the Regency Square car park which has 507 spaces. Regency Square car park has electric vehicle charging points.
